    Wink Enquiry & Inquiry

    Dear Teacher,

    What is the difference between enquiry and inquiry? Is Inquiry American English?

    Thank you,

    Re: Enquiry & Inquiry

    Enquiry and inquiry have long existed together as alternative spellings of the same word. In America inquiry is dislodging enquiry for all purposes. In England a useful distinction is developing: enquiry is used for asking a question and inquiry for making an investigation. Thus you might enquire what time the inquiry begins.
